After a S.T.A.R. Labs transport was hijacked, Batman and Robin split up, each taking one of the get-away vehicles. Together, they recovered 8 of the 9 stolen items. Batman had Oracle start on the last. Batman sent Tim home so he could get a good night's sleep before his first day of 11th grade the next day. The remaining at-large thief returned home to find his girlfriend tied up. One of his boss's enforcers, Johnny Warren, was there. Robin got a line on him and went to investigate. He found the man dead and let his guard slip. Warren captured him.
Robin got out of Johnny Warren's grasp and roughed him up. In the fight, Johnny accidentally shot his own left hand off. He shot the hostage and escaped with the S.T.A.R. Labs loot while Robin tended the injured girl. Robin, feeling he could have done more if he could have gotten there faster, asked Batman for his own transportation. He returned home and told his father he'd been roughed up trying out for the football team. Johnny Warren, after being patched up by his mother, opened the loot and was attacked by it. Batman gave Robin a motorcycle.
Johnny Warren, being driven by the parasitic entity he'd let loose, surfaced and killed two police officers. He then attacked his old gang's hideout and informed them he was the new boss. Robin found Warren's mother, dead and decayed. Spoiler found the two cops in the same condition. Robin and Spoiler went after Warren. He attacked them and burned out. One punch from Robin tore him into pieces. He resurfaced weeks later in Istanbul under the name Johnny Warlock.
At an open house at Tim's school, Jack Drake found out he'd not tried out for the football team. Wondering what else his son was hiding from him, he searched his room. Batman continued to work hard with Robin, who was still apprehensive about having 'killed' Johnny Warren. Batman told him he could use that excuse one more time - when he quit. Tim again spoke with Stephanie about quitting the life. She beat him up about it and reminded him of all the good he'd done. Jack Drake found Robin's outfit and journal. He went to Wayne Manor and threatened Bruce at gunpoint.
Bruce disarmed Jack Drake. Drake accused him of using mind control over his son. He threatened to tell everyone - the media, the police, the world - Wayne's secret. Robin returned to the cave to find Bruce and his father. Jack ordered Tim to get out of his costume and to go home with him. Nightwing arrived as Tim and his father talked; Bruce got into costume. Alfred suggested killing the Drakes so that the secrets wouldn't be exposed. The humor broke the ice a bit. Jack agreed not to expose anyone, and Tim agreed to no longer be Robin. In Istanbul, Johnny Warlock hired a hitwoman to take Robin down. She planned to unearth his secret identity. He called his former boss in Gotham an ordered him to create chaos in order to bring Robin out of hiding (he'd not been seen lately).
